Mustang convertible

I have booked a mustang convertible for 2019 in Orlando. Does anyone know what trim level they normally are?

seeing that it is almost the new year and hertz is prob getting their new fleet in, i doubt you can put your finger down on a particular trim.

I have had several 2018s around the country this year, and. '19 a couple of weeks ago at SAN. All were ecoBoost Premium with the optional 10 speed automatic transmission. I have seen GTs on the lot occasionally, but only in the Premium upgrade section.

The ecoBoosts are surprisingly peppy for a heavy car with a 4 cyl turbo.

Almost all that I've seen in any rental fleet are turbo-4s in premium with leather.

An ecoboost premium would put a smile on my face! Just as it has sync3 with Apple CarPlay.

Got assigned a 5.0 GT convertible at OGG back in August as PC with a U reservation.

Doesn't look like they distinguish the GT from the 4cyl, like did they did with the Camaro 4cyl versus SS being a separate bookable Adrenaline collection class. Going back to OGG in a week, and hoping for another GT

Had an Avis one way rental several months back for P cars, they were slim but had a Mustang Coupe with leather, said it was fine (no interest in a convertible for highway driving or during summer in FL lol) as I just wanted to get going and saw that it looked brand new. They had several others all with the same wheels but noticed others were 5.0 as I was leaving. Lot attendant offered to switch me but would have to re-do paperwork so I said no thanks to get on my way. Same class also!

That's a good deal. The GT is so much better. The 2018 turbo-4 is better than the 2015 but it's still a turbo-4. You can't beat a V8 and less than 5 seconds to 60.

Definitely, sounds great and definitely quick. Too bad the number of roads on Maui with posted speed limit greater than 45 mph is approximately 2.
